Ricky Pierce

Milwaukee Bucks
6-5 205 Guard-Forward

One of the league's best sixth men during regular season, he was pretty much a bust in playoffs... Got tossed from final game against Boston after throwing vicious elbow at Celts' Danny Ainge... Shooting percentage of .538 in regular season was best of career... Born Aug. 19, 1959, in Garland, Tex.... Came to Bucks in Terry Cummings-Marques Johnson swap... Pistons drafted him 18th overall in 1982... Rice product made $150,000 on one-year deal... then became free agent after last season... good shooter and an animated player in general... Don Nelson gave him back his confidence and he gave Nelson a reliable sub.
